Product Review: Dimplex DFI2310 Electric Fireplace Deluxe 23-Inch Insert
Price Range: $250 – $300
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a top quality electric fireplace insert for an existing fireplace opening in their home.
- No installation is required unlike with a gas or wood fireplace. Just simply place the fireplace in the area you want it then plug it into a standard 120-volt power outlet and enjoy. An optional trim kit is available so you can attain the perfect finish.
- Dimplex’s patented flame technology is in a different league to most other electric fireplaces. With a flame so life-like and realistic you could be forgiven for thinking you were looking at the real thing.
- The fireplace also features hand-painted ceramic logs which use LED technology to deliver a wonderful glowing effect, creating a warm and cosy ambiance in your room.
- The heater provides 1375-watts of heating power and emits out heat quietly using an internal fan, making it able to heat up a room as large as 400 square feet. The two heat settings allow you to vary the heat output to your preference.
- Low operating costs allow you to have the flame and heat on at the cost of just 8c/hour, based on current electricity rates.
- A remote control is included to enable convenient operation of the fireplace without leaving your armchair.
- The remote control only provides basic on/off functionality so other functions need to be operated using the controls on the unit.
Guarantee: 1-year parts warranty.
